Incoming Student Guide

Welcome to Duke!

As you prepare for your first semester at Duke, we would like to inform you of the many opportunities for first year students in the Theater Studies department.

We have a variety of courses open to incoming students including:

THEATRST 89s First Year Seminar: Collaboration and Improvisation with Professor Jody McAuliffe
THEATRST 210s American Musicals with Professor Bradley Rogers
THEATRST 334s Modern Drama 1880 - 1940 with Professor Darren Gobert

First year students are also welcome to audition for our Fall Mainstage 12th Night. More information on auditions available soon.

If you are interested in our department, but are not sure where to start, please attend our Open House on August 24th from 5:30 to 7pm in Sheafer Theater. It will be a casual event with a BBQ buffet, backstage tours and a chance to speak with current Theater Studies students and faculty.
